Beef: the diagonal speed bump of doom

Reegan Weber, Staff Writer

The diagonal speed bump in the front parking lot causes nothing but misery for all drivers who notice their car rocketing into the sky four times instead of twice, as each individual wheel clunks into the bump. Although the intention of a school speed bump is safety, I can only wonder why on earth a diagonal speed bump is necessary when a straight bump would achieve the same results. What kind of twisted genius thinks up a way to turn an innocent safety precaution into a way of inflicting angst on already-stressed teenagers? With each tortuous jolt I can almost hear cynical laughter of the engineer who finds pleasure in my pain. You may think I’m overreacting but constructing the bump sideways was completely unnecessary.
